George is more than just a tour guide. He is the best kind of ambassador for his island. He is warm and engaging, highly intelligent, and brings the culture and history of Crete to vivid fascinating life. His car is super comfy, the little stops along the way there and back all very interesting and provide little snapshots of Cretan life in the villages and mountains. The beach was stunning beyond words! Returning, a stop at a taverna outdoors with gorgeous views of the surrounding country a highlight.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The tours I do are an experience more than just visiting a location. Elafonisi is one of the most stunning beaches in the world (no 6 in TripAdvisor). I try to explain the socioeconomic situation in Greece, along with history snippets of various locations and explaining the horticultural, ethnographic and geological dimension of Crete island! Most restaurants are exceptional, locals distinguish the outstanding eateries with quality of production and fresh ingredients provided by local suppliers.

We had a wonderful day with George. Elafonisi is beautiful but can be very crowded. George was able to get us to the beach before the crowds so we were able to get a prime waterside spot for our day. George gave us so much information about the area, culture and history. He was also very flexible when we decided to go to Chania for a quick look. Thank you George for a wonderful day! We hope to be back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you had a good time in Chania! There is so much to see in this beautiful place and one day does no justice, but I believe for your group we had the best possible day out. This is the advantage of Tours by Locals, trips organized by locals, flexible, custom made. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays in the Greek islands!

George was absolutely our kind of tour guide! We had the best time with him showing us around Chania. We drove to the gorgeous beach of Elafonisi. On our way we had to stop for goats crossing the road! We relaxed at the most beautiful beach ever! On the way back we stopped at a church in a cave. Along the way, George pointed out many interesting sites and facts. Thanks, George!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that you had a memorable experience in Crete! I think you need to come back and see more of Greece, Crete and Chania! Hope you have an excellent holiday throughout your Europe tour! It was a pleasure to meet you!
